Abstract [sv]

I debatter om invandring fokuseras ofta på problemrelaterade områden som flyktingskap och konflikter mellan etniska grupper. Ett mindre uppmärksammat område inom både mediedebatt och forskning är migration mellan västerländska länder. Denna uppsats utforskar svenska kvinnors erfarenheter av att vara invandrare i USA. Den undersöker också vilka utmaningar och problem som svenska invandrare kan stöta på om de återvänder till Sverige efter många år utomlands. Teman som platsanknytning, etnisk och kulturell gruppgemenskap, främlingskap, tradition och symbolism diskuteras i uppsatsen. De kulturella skillnaderna i synen på jämställdhet mellan de båda länderna diskuteras också. Resultaten baseras på intervjuer med elva kvinnor som alla har erfarenheter av att migrera till USA.

Abstract [en]

In discussions about immigration the debate usually concentrates on problem related areas like refugees and conflicts between ethnic groups with large cultural differences. A neglected area in the media debate as well as the academic field is the migration between Western countries. This thesis explores the experiences of Swedish women as immigrants in the USA. It also examines which problems and difficulties Swedish immigrants may experience when returning to their home country after several years abroad. Themes like place attachment, ethnic and cultural belonging, alienation, tradition and symbolism are discussed in the thesis. The issue of different cultural views on gender is also discussed in the analysis. The results are based on interviews with eleven women with experiences of migrating to the USA.
